Configuring a Map Component Using the Report Builder


When you add a map component to a report, you must use a data set that contains fields with either degrees of latitude and longitude that can be located on a map or a country code.

You can use a map component to group aggregate data on a map according to regional location. Users can pan and zoom in to view specific data points.
